|Jonathan is 29 Months|
We haven't worked on a Bible verse this week. We've been taking a little break from it. I have been playing the Seeds of Courage on our iPod and Jonathan likes dancing and moving around to the music.
We continued reading through a little devotional in the morning, Everything a Child Should Know about God by Kenneth Taylor. We do one page each day and talk about the pictures.
We bought a few more books from the Beginner's Bible I Can Read and Jonathan loves these books. Each night he asks for one or more stories.
We read lots and lots of books the past couple weeks about firemen/firetrucks (see part I and part II) as well as footballs.
- Flashing Fire Engines by Tony Mitton- this is another part of Tony Mitton's Amazing Machines series. This book focuses on firemen. and is a wonderful, fun introduction to what firemen do.
- Fire Engine Man by Andrea Zimmerman & David Clemesha- a little boy imagines what he will do as a fireman someday and how he'll teach his younger brother to be a fireman.
- The Little Fire Engine by Lois Lenski- a reprint of a 1946 book that tells about Fireman Small and shows him going through his day fighting fires and rescuing people. The vintage illustrations are charming and Jonathan wanted it read "again" and "again".
- My Football Book by Gail Gibbons- This nonfiction book teaches the main rules and positions of American football through showing a friendly competition between two teams.
We practiced stop, dropping, and rolling while we were learning fire safety. We also practiced "climbing" a ladder:
We also played football. :)
We made a firetruck from a box and some construction paper. Both Jonathan and his friend T. had fun dressing up and pretending to be firemen:
We used our beginner pattern blocks to make a firetruck:
And did puzzles which featured firetrucks and footballs:
and Jonathan also had fun playing with his fire extinguisher which just happens to be a water gun. I let him "clean" my windows.
So that's what we've been up to this week!
